Interested in getting more involved in the community? Don't miss the free Volunteer Expo Series and check out the upcoming 22 August 2015 Expo, to be held at the City of Joondalup Leisure Centre - Craigie. This event is the second of three expos in 2015 and is organised by the Volunteer Task Force and the Joondalup Volunteer Resource Centre (JVRC).
It is the first time dedicated expos have been held in WA with more than 30 clubs, groups and organisations hosting stalls to promote a range of volunteering opportunities within the City of Joondalup and the northern corridor of Perth.
Local volunteers can find out more about working in areas as diverse as one-off cultural events, gardening, adult-literacy tutoring, visiting isolated members of the community, photography and advocacy.
The June expo was a great success with over 300 attendees, see some photos of the expo holders and the general event.
